“Iran knows they are on borrowed time” Trump fires warning shot

Published

US President Donald Trump says Iran is on borrowed time after slapping the Arab nation with historic sanction ever imposed on any nation.

The 78 years old American president speaking during a press conference on Friday, September 20th, 2019 after a meeting with the Australian prime minister Scott Morrison at the white house

Armed-chaired on his traditional yellow armchair, the boastful US President responding to a possible military strike on American historic enemy Iran.

 Trump says his country has the best military in the world, the best warplanes, and the best ships— and remains more ready than ever to strike anytime any day, saying “it’s the easiest thing for me to do”

President Trump in his more than 30 minutes interview touched on multiple world issues including the American forgotten war in Afghanistan, the trade war with China and the Saudi Arabia oil facility last week which the both Washington and Riyadh blame it on Iran.

Speaking after his country has slapped Iran with some of the most punitive sanctions ever imposed to any nation, President Trump reminded all who cared to listen that Iran is on borrowed time and military option is still on the table amidst war drum beating in Washington

“Striking them is the easiest thing I can do, I can do it right here and you guys will have breaking news” trump told cheerful journalists whom he mostly referred to their media houses as Fake news

He once again took aim at his favorite target president Obama for having negotiated a very “terrible deal” with Iran ( a reference an Obama era deal signed with Iran and 5 major world powers in 2016 which curtailed its nuclear ambitions)

 

But apart from lambasting at President Obama, Trump also reminded critics who say he should have hit Iran with limited strikes for disrupting the world oil supply chain by targeting the world; largest oil refinery in Saudi Arabia.

 

“I tell, them it’s not a weakness, it’s a strength,” Trump told anxious and raucous reporters at the White house. Adding that we have the strongest military in the world by far and “I pray we done use it on Iran”.

 

Trump has been under pressure from Iranian hawks within the US government and congress who wants an attack on the Persian nation, following the oil strikes in Saudi Arabia last week and the downing of American drone months ago.

Many say anything less of a military strike to retaliate would be seen as a sign of weakness by the world most powerful man.

But Trump who has been keen to pressure the Iranian to renegotiate a new deal has opted to rather push for more sanctions against the Ayatollahs-one which he says “targets those at the very top

Following last week attack on Saudi Arabia which the US blamed Iran for the act even though Iran sponsored Huthi rebels had claimed responsibility, Trump had been cautious with regards to any war in a region which might drown the America military for another generation into war.

The Iranians have warned the Us government through Swiss that any attack on their land by the US will be met with an all-out war, warning that both US bases abroad and American allies like Saudi and Israel are within the range of Iranian missiles.

They have also accused the US of economic warfare and have warned other signatories of the deal to do more to keep it alive else they will abandon the deal

US government has repeatedly said Iran will never be allowed to acquire nuclear weapons, calling it a red line

Operation Mamba: Ailing Gabonese President purges opponent in new anti-corruption drive

Published

on

Authorities in Gabon this week arrested eight people who are suspected of theft and money-laundering in what is seen as follow-up to Operation Mamba, an anti-corruption campaign launched in 2017 by President Ali Bongo, who has been battling serious illness.

The revived anti-graft drive has seen a string of top-level arrests in the central African country, as accusations that millions of euros have disappeared from state coffers swirl around top officials.

“Eight people have been placed in preventive detention,” Gabon’s prosecutor Andre Patrick Roponat said on Thursday, adding that they were accused of “siphoning off public funds and money-laundering.”

The group appeared before a judge on Wednesday along with eight others who were released on bail, Roponat said.

Pro-government newspaper L’Union reported this week that more than 85 billion CFA francs ($142 million) have “evaporated” over the past two years from the funds of the Gabon Oil Company.

60-year-old Bongo said last month he was “fiercely determined” to push ahead with the campaign against graft.

Political witch-hunt?

One high-profile political figure embroiled in the affair is Brice Laccruche Alihanga, Bongo’s former cabinet director who took the lead and spoke for the president after he suffered a stroke in 2018.

Laccuruche had held his cabinet post for more than two years but was dismissed on November 7, at the start of a wave of arrests.

He has announced on social media that he will undertake a new mission for “the president and for Gabon”.

Earlier this week, lawyers told AFP that presidential spokesman Ike Ngouoni and a dozen others were arrested and questioned over their ties to Alihanga.

The lawyers also insist that “there is a political vendetta” in the current process, a claim the country’s Prime Minister refutes.

During his months-long absence abroad for treatment, speculation over Bongo’s fitness surged and the army quashed a brief attempted coup.

Bongo has ruled Gabon since 2009, following the death of his father Omar Bongo, who was in power from 1967.
